Sin Eater… #Poetry

The leaf eater lives on a dying planet

Where the moon is the only thing you see

The light strip beneath the dark clouds

Is a place the leaf eater visits each day

To collect sins, bad habits that

People wish to be rid of

He has no strange features and looks like you or I

Blending in with humanity

He finds one who needs him

Overhearing conversations

He presents himself to the desperate

Telling them he can help them

By ridding them of what bothers them most

Bring me a leaf, while holding it

Tell me of your problems.

This done, he eats the leaf

Telling that person all will be well

None will realise that when he has eaten

A million and one leaves

The one will take his place on the dying planet

The cycle will begin again…

  1. Exactly! The humanists want us to stop using fossil fuels, eating meat, anything not organic, and preserve our water usage. If every person did this, the earth would soon be a wasteland! There’s no way we could keep up to a vegan lifestyle without destroying the environment.
    Just my two cents worth.
